With the following sequence I had expected "scipy.base.numeric" to be a 
module,  instead it is reported as a type.

 >>> import scipy.base.numeric
 >>> dir()
['__builtins__', '__doc__', '__name__', 'scipy']
 >>> scipy
<module 'scipy' from 'C:\Python24\lib\site-packages\scipy\__init__.pyc'>
 >>> scipy.base
<module 'scipy.base' from 
 >>> scipy.base.numeric
<type 'numeric_arrtype'>
I need to be able to access ndarray to create a subclass.
